GUIDE TO ErP.
ENERGY LABELLING DIRECTIVE.IDEAL COMMERCIAL BOILERS HAS BEEN PREPARING FOR THE ENERGY RELATED PRODUCTS (ErP) DIRECTIVE SINCE ITS ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE 21ST OCTOBER 2009 WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF OUR MARKET LEADING CONDENSING RANGE. EACH BOILER OUTPERFORMS THE 2015 ErP REQUIREMENTS. THE ENERGY LABELLING DIRECTIVE WORKS IN CONJUNCTION WITH ECODESIGN BY CLEARLY DISPLAYING THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF ANY BOILER WITH AN OUTPUT UP TO 70kW.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR MANUFACTURERS
Boiler manufacturers such as Ideal Commercial Boilers will be responsible for ensuring their products have compliant energy labelling.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR SPECIFIERS AND INSTALLERS
• Easy to specify the most effi cient boiler
• Clear running cost savings
• You will need to calculate a system efficiency figure based on the different components of the system, e.g. boiler, control, renewable product used. Boilers include a blank label for system efficiency.
All boilers up to 70kW will be required to have an energy label (product fi che). This will be included in the product brochure and other literature supplied with the boiler. These are already a familiar sight on white goods.
Low rated products in bands F and G will not be permitted under the new directive.
WHAT IS ErP?
ErP is the framework directive that has been designed by the EU to improve the product effi ciency of all Energy-related Products. This includes all heating and hot water products up to 400kW. ErP is designed to help the EU achieve its target to reduce energy use by 20% and increase the share of renewable energies by 20% by 2020. Ecodesign and Labelling Directives make up the ErP legislation, which applies throughout the EU.
